The golf-minded fashionistas at www.trendygolf.com recently featured stripes as seasonal apparel trend for golfers. Not just any stripes, but bold horizontal stripes that make a statement on the green, as well as thinner traditional versions. They’re appearing on golf pros’ shirts in single or multicolor variations for a sporty look that is hard to miss.
Dunbrooke Apparel (asi/50930) offers an extensive line of polos in its house brand, as well as a collection of Reebok styles. “We’re seeing more trends in the [market], instead of just your basic polo,” says Angela Wong, merchandise manager at Dunbrooke. “There are more colors, details – it’s a bit more stylish instead of your basic moisture-wicking polos. Both Dunbrooke and Reebok represent ‘classic.’ We stick to the basics, but we like to come out with better fabric that is snag-resistant, different knit structures, etc.”
Its Reebok PlayDry jacquard stripe polo, for example, picks up on this year’s stripes trend while also delivering performance technologies for moisture management and breathability. The PlayDry base layer moves moisture, accelerates evaporation, ventilation and reduces abrasion. The polo achieves the smart balance of stylish form with practical function.
